I used to hate this song when I was younger because I thought it was depressing and sad. It may very well have an air of sadness, but I definitely understand the lyrics now that I’m older and have more life experiences.Everybody Hurts is an anti-suicide song, but I have heard that people have actually committed suicide while listening to it. I’m sure this is another reason why I initially didn’t like the song.
What made me think of this song, you ask? I was watching So You Think You Can Dance and there was a beautiful dance routine to the Tina Arena version of this song. I like her version better but I gotta give respect to the original.
I’m not sure if I’m offended that they didn’t use a Black woman or if I’m offended that they used a White woman, but the amount of grinding going on in this commercial is wild! Especially at the beginning, she’s grinding like Snoop Dogg is underneath her.
Speaking of Snoop, he seems to be lending himself to many cornball projects lately. Charlie Sheen, now this? Oh well, gotta get paid, I guess!
There are a few positives; her ass is covered, she’s not a size 2 and she’s not sexy. I’m sure this is an attempt to taker her grinding to a PG13 level.
Does her “Droppin’ it like it’s hot” make you want to taste Sun Drop?
